Video Blues


Mysterious, evocative images filmed with a late 1980s camcorder flicker across the screen while a man and a woman wonder what they might mean. Emma looks back over her family history to piece together a series of lives that remain a mystery to her. As she journeys back to her childhood, the universe she finds there might not be quite the one she remembered. A mystery film and exorcism to boot.


Emma Tusell (Madrid, 1980) studied editing at the ECAM in Madrid and documentary at the EICTV in Cuba. Over the last fifteen years, she has edited Carlos Vermut's Magical Girl (2014) and José Luis Cuerda's Tiempo después la última película (2018), among others. Her own films include the feature La habitación de Elías (2006) and the series Madrid crea.
